Home Sewn


public, pay-what-you-can series of sewing workshops in the craft space at the Carlisle Tool Library in Carlisle, PA

In these gatherings, we explored visible repair and various styles of garment fixing, construction, editing, and embellishment. Each edition has a theme and invited local community members to bring their own household textiles and clothing to repair.

A tool library is like a library for books, except its shelves are stocked with tools. At the Carlisle Tool Library, our annual memberships are designed to be accessible—there is a sliding scale for individuals from any income level. Members can borrow tools, participate in workshops, and use the wood shop.
